New Growers Drying buds
Hi there everyone, I’m a new grower in Queensland Australia
I have a mix of photos and autos growing outside.
I am planning where to dry my buds at harvest time, my only real option is the garden shed. This could get pretty hot and humid when the autos are ready ( not so much for the photos)
I understand I don’t have the best conditions, but does anyone have any tips on drying in a sub tropical climate??
@papa-smurf Welcome to Percys mate!
If its going to be hot and humid, you cant dry there ate, mould will gown and fuck up your buds....... Get a big cardboard box, hang the buds in there with a small fan inside the box to keep the air moving.
The cardboard will absorb some of the moisture out of the air and keep humidity lower. It is important to make sure the air is always moving in the drying room too. Stale air will germinate mould spores.
You probably dont have any extraction considering you were growing out side? If not, you can get a small pc fan, and cut a hole in the side of the box. Put the small fan in that holle, and it will help drawn out the old air in the box and pull in fresh air too. You can do it man, itll be a mission and you need to be extra cautious of mould. But keep humidity down, and keep the fresh air moving and you should be ok.
I hope this helps

Concrete dying box, so it will take the termites longer to chew through. Inside or out! 🤣 Been there, I've seen the concrete telephone poles. LOL
Macky's got ya covered 👍
Welcome to Percy's, things are pretty cool here. 😎 Glad you made it man, Let us know if we can help with anything.
@macky thanks for the advice bro, I will definitely try the cardboard box setup. I have a fan in mind for moving the air around the shed. I can also get a little fan for the air change in the box too. Since I wasn’t sure how the drying would go I have started a few autos 3 weeks apart. With a little trial and ( not too much) error I’ll get it right 👍 loving the high on homegrown mate, keep up the good work 🙏🤙
